Haiti is falling apart.

Our God is so big.
Our God placed it in men and women's hearts years ago to love and serve the people of Haiti. They have, over time developed programs and done great works of love over the past years. Many many people have fallen in love with Haiti since January 12. Many people have seen the great need and brokenness that is there, and praise the Lord for that! But there are many who have been there all along. That were well established in cities and towns WAY before the earthquake happened. God placed them there. They are already fluent in the language, have established relationships with the people and have built trust within those relationships. Prasie the Lord for that!
God was not suprised on January 12. He was not suprised by the first incident of Cholera in October, He is not shocked that it is continuing to spread and kill thousands. He won't be suprised on the 28th when the elections are held.
I want to ask you, if you are reading this post, to pray for Haiti.
God is near to the poor, sick, and broken in spirit. He is VERY near to Haiti.
-Pray for the elections coming up on the 28th. Pray that a leader who loves Christ will be put in charge. Pray that he will have the wisdom and humility to know what to do with this broken nation and the humility to ask when he doesn't.
-Pray for the people of Haiti. That no matter what the outcome of the election that they will respect those that God has put in Authority. Pray for safety. There have been many riots in the past few days due to this election.
-Pray for the Cholera epidemic. They need prayers. They need money. They need help.
-Pray for the organizations that have been in the thick of it all since before the earthquake. Some organizations that I follow and personally know some of the staff of are Global Outreach, Heartline Ministries, Real Hope For Haiti. Pray for them. They need it. Real Hope For Haiti runs a rescue center that is now overflowing with Cholera patients. They are recieving help from nurses at Global outreach and Heartline as well as some other ministries. (I linked to thier blog at the top of this post.)
-Pray for Haiti.
